It almost seems like Auto-Tune Pro was hyped up by Antares at all these producer and audio engineering conferences, just to be rushed to release long before it had gone through proper testing for bugs and stability. Nonetheless I can see this being a really useful feature for some performers. A fast setting means near-instantaneous correction, while at higher millisecond values the program is more leisurely in its processing and allows more of the natural pitch variations to come through. This essentially is the same as the Make Notes tool you can also draw notes manually if you wanted , except with the line tool you can also draw diagonally and vertically, if I wanted to correct a slide into a note, for example. Links to your music are only permitted. Just quote the part you don't understand and ask for clarifications. I've hard to force quit Logic a few times now, which pains me to say.
The only thing I see is that when you draw a line, you don't see it until you make a waypoint and start drawing another line. Also, to be more specific for everyone, I'm trying to decide between Melodyne Editor 4 and Antares Autotune 8. You may have to edit the notes, depending on how well Logic has interpreted the audio. Automatic tuning is synonymous with many things, good and bad. My studio brand and sound is mostly based on the hardware I have.
Then click at the left of the area of the pitch waveform that you want to change, on the line that defines the note you want, and then double-click on the same line on the right of the area. A blue line will be drawn on the window. I just upgraded to AutoTune 5 about a month ago. Posts should be made to inform or facilitate discussion. It's superb from a technical point of view really as it definitely does achieve what it claims to do. Is anyone else either successfully using this set-up or experiencing major bugs with it? At this point you may be wondering what I'm on about. One last thing: if you must, you'll get the 'Cher effect' by using a response speed of zero.
Are you comparing the full versions of each? Quite a few of you asked for an auto-save facility, drum replacement tools and a general improvement to Logic 's look and feel, to make it more 'Apple-like'. Irrelevant controls are locked out in this mode. But sounds like a slight doubling to me, and it's got a breathness which is typical vocoder territory. For this using it in graphical mode as an effect thing. And if you know what you're doing in graphical mode, it's amazing how much you can push the retune before it becomes noticeable. You may want to use this tool if you feel the Line tool gives too much of a 'static' effect. The emotions is what count in vocals.
The number of controls has grown over the years, and in this new Pro version, the Auto mode can be switched between a Basic view, which hides some of the more exotic features to help the new user, and an Advanced view where all the controls are available. If you listen through again with Pitch Correction enabled, you'll be able to see how much your recording deviates from the 'correct' pitches shown on the plug-in's keyboard, by looking at the Correction Amount display. That's what we're here for. If rebooting does not fix this issue, please visit iLok. Antares doesn't have a forum, and I can't find anything else about this apparent anomaly online anywhere. Pros: New Flex Tune technology sounds more natural. Auto-Tune has several facilities that attempt to create a more naturalistic pitch-correction effect in its automatic mode.
Otherwise, the tools look very similar to those in the previous version. Step four: collect the royalties. Logic 's plug-in is, of course, similar to Antares Auto-Tune and occasionally we are actually supposed to be able to hear it working as an effect. Suffice it to say that you need to 'watch this space' for further news. But a good singer does not need it. Automatic is the more straightforward of the two to use but still has plenty of features.
Pitch Correction will work very well for many recordings, but even finer control over pitch can be achieved by using Antares Auto-Tune, which has a few extra features and also features a useful graphical mode a mode that Pitch Correction lacks. I'm thinking it's an Intel thing. A pitch-correction plug-in can save the day in these situations and, as we shall see, its effect doesn't always have to be obvious. He also happened to be a musician, and by chance he found out the same tech he made for finding oil could be used to change the pitch of a singers voice. The plug-in is full of bugs, it seems -- mostly in graphical mode. Apparently this is a Mac Intel issue across the board, and Apple is working on an update to address the issue. Here's a quick guide on how to use Logic 's pitch-correction plug-in.
I thought maybe it was an issue with Logic, so I tried it in Reaper instead, and same thing. Crashed the shit out of every system I tried to use it with, and caused issues even when it wasn't instantiated. There are also cut-down versions available with a more modest feature set, if they satisfy your needs. Only a few of you were concerned about the 'sound' of Logic 's summing mixer, but the ones that wanted improvements usually put this at the top of their list. I thought maybe this was just missing functionality for line objects, but according to the manual, it should. Switching to Classic mode highlights just how much the tuning algorithm has improved over the years, as the current version sounds far more natural by comparison with its predecessors — that old version, set to a fast correction speed, conjures up feelings of nostalgia.
Thought Melodyne had taken over in the last bunch of years but to be fair I don't sort of travel in those circles that much these days. A little reverb and delay on the vocals? You could, for example, draw a 'pitch fade' at the end of a track, to create the effect of a tape slowing down, or modify a recording of an organ with pitch sweeps for that 'turning the Hammond on and off' experience. When I try to use the various tools in the graphical view, the plug-in will just basically stop responding. All of my waves plug ins validate when I scan for them but not my auto tune all of a sudden? Of course, could just be auto-tuned. You can choose between input types based on voice characteristics and then set a key and a scale, and specify the notes to be corrected, bypassed or removed in the central display area. In the example at top right, the 'tail' of the note varies from note D3 more than I'd like, so I'd want to correct it. It's useful on any monophonic source where the pitch can be easily interpreted, but it can't work miracles.
Antares quickly pushed out 9. You could, for example, reduce the response time on sections that you don't want to sound obviously processed, bypass the plug-in altogether, or automate the bypass buttons to exclude certain notes from the correction process. Melodyne, particularly works well for timing and polyphonic sounds too, which really surprised me. For most common pitch problems, Auto-Tune 7's Automatic Mode instantaneously detects the pitch of the input, identifies the closest pitch in a user-specified scale including minor, major, chromatic and 26 historical and microtonal scales , and corrects the input pitch to match the scale pitch. If you repeat this for everything that need fixing, you can make small, subtle corrections only where really required. All with a user-interface that is a model of clarity, speed and ease-of-use. It's important to get this setting right, as the plug-in works differently depending on the audio type it's processing.
